Mega Latios EX -- Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Review

Mega Latios EX Roaring Skies
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Mega Latios EX from the Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Set.  Mega Latios EX is a Mega Evolution, EX, dragon type Pokemon card with an hp of 220. It has a x2 weakness to fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a free retreat cost.  Mega Latios does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Sonic Ace, for three energy cards, one each of water, psychic, and colorless, this move does 120 damage to one of your opponent's Pokemon, however in order to use this move you must discard two energy cards attached to Mega Latios.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
Before I start with the strategy, remember that this card is a Mega Evolution card and an EX card so if you use this card in your deck and it gets knocked out, your opponent gets to take two prize cards instead of one and when you evolve an EX card into its Mega Evolution, your turn ends, you cannot do anything else.  So knowing these things, you'll always want to use Mega Evolution cards with caution, with that being said, it is very strange that Latios EX from this set can do almost as much damage as this Mega card and that is requires more energy cards to attack.  So Latios EX could definitely be used on its own, but the strategy I would recommend for this Pokemon line would be to evolve Latios EX into Mega Latios EX on the bench, ending your turn.  Then when a Pokemon on your opponent's bench would be knocked out by 120 damage or less, move Mega Latios into the active Pokemon spot, discard two energy cards and knock out that Pokemon, then the next turn retreat Mega Latios for free.  You need a couple of things to make this card really work well, number one you need to use this card in a spread damage type deck, preferably with a card that can do 10 or 20 damage to each of your opponent's Pokemon, and two, you need a way to get energy cards from your discard pile back into your hand or deck so you can quickly reattach them to Mega Latios, if you have those two things working in your deck this card could be very dominant, but I definitely wouldn't use more than a 1-1 line of Latios EX and Mega Latios EX in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average Mega EX Pokemon card from the Roaring Skies set.  I really do like Mega Latios' one move, how it can do any 120 damage to any one of your opponent's Pokemon and that it can retreat for free, but having to discard two energy cards every time you use its move seems silly for a Mega EX card, so that is why I am giving it only an average rating.  Together with Latios EX from this set, I can't give these two cards higher than a 3 out of 5 rating, the same rating each card received individually.
